The Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City has recently been given the fantastic news that they have gained permission from the New Jersey state casino regulators to begin offering online gambling to players within the state. If you have already been playing at an online sites such as the Rushmore Casino which is set up for US players, then this news may not affect you, but if you are waiting for US licensed casinos in order to try them out then you know how have one more option so long as you are within the state boundaries of New Jersey.
There was a hasty trial period for the online casino, in which they were asked to improve their software as it did not meet minimum requirements. This meant that if they wanted to get access to the 9 million person plus market which was available in the state, they were going to have to rethink things and put them out in higher quality level. Finally, they have changed a few things around, and at last they are going to be offering online casino games starting from this weekend. This means that real cash players can sign up from within New Jersey, no matter what part of the state they are in, in order to play any of their games no matter when. At the opening of the online gambling market in New Jersey, there were six casinos which were immediately clear to begin offering games, but the site and systems for Golden Nugget were experiencing glitches that neither the state regulators nor the casino operators themselves were pleased with. At that time, the management made promises that the site would not be going live until they were convinced that their customers would get the high-quality experience they expected when they started to play.
“We weren’t satisfied with what we were ready to offer our customers at that point. Now, we are very satisfied,” The general manager of Golden Nugget, Tom Pohlman said. “Everything is exactly where we want it to be. We offer more titles of slots, video poker, and table games titles than anyone [else], and we make it easier than anywhere else to fund an account and get started.” This is something that might well prove to be a saving grace for the site, as although they have come into the market a little later than everyone else, they have still been some issues with other sites seeing their payments being blocked. This is because the banks still need to update their systems in order to distinguish between the fully legal online gambling payments that they can make and the others which would not be accepted under the current regulations. The wide range of payment options which is on offer may well help, as they are offering a prepaid card from Discover which none of the other online casinos have available, meaning that players can fund their accounts without having to get their bank account involved.
